Florida Panthers v New Jersey Devils

The New Jersey Devils will have forward Ilya Kovalchuk back in the lineup for their game today against the Florida Panthers.


Kovalchuk has been out of the lineup since March 23rd, after he suffered a shoulder injury against these same Panthers. On the season, he has 10 goals and 17 assists in 32 games.

The Devils need a win today if they hope to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. They currently sit in 11th place in the eastern Conference with 42 points, eight points behind the Rangers for the final playoff spot.
